      • matchWildcard

        public static int matchWildcard​(java.lang.String source,
                                        java.lang.String pattern)
        Match two Strings, considering wildcards.
        • if Object.equals(Object) is true -> return 0
        • if 'pattern' matches 'source' -> return value > 1; bigger values represent a better match
        • if both Strings do not match -> return -1

        Implementation note: only one wildcard is considered. Either the entire string is "*" or the wildcard is at the beginning or at the end of the pattern String. The the JUnit test for details.

        source - the String to be evaluated
        pattern - the pattern String, i.e. "meter*"
        an integer value representing the degree of matching
